Marxist humanism


Marxist humanism
   An interpretation of Marxism that stresses the humanist themes found in Marx’s early writings, Marxist humanism is most closely associated with the Yugoslav Praxis School, and can also be traced in the work of the Frankfurt School and Jean- Paul Sartre. In Marxist humanism attention is given to developing Marx’s theory of human nature and alienation, and Marxism itself is viewed as a philosophy rather than as a science.
